Thank you! I've been trying to tell people this very exact thing. EM is selling their campus in Fairfax, VA and using that money to build the new campus in TX (rather than continue to rent offices in Greenspoint). Thus, the only people relocating are the ones in Fairfax, VA (less than 3,000 employees) and I'm sure some will choose not to relocate to TX for personal reasons (e.g. don't want to move from the northeast to TX, don't want to take their kids out of school, spouse's job, etc). When relocating the campus from central NJ to southern NJ (only an hour away) many employees chose not to stay with the company because they didn't want to move so it will be the same for people currently in VA especially since it's to another state all together.

Then there's the fact that not everyone will work in that office. Many will work at contractors' offices in the Energy Corridor, Sugar Land, other states and countries.

I love the area. We live in the Falls at Imperial Oaks, and it is a beautiful and quiet neighborhood.
